a) A circle is not the graph of a function. b) A circle is not linear.

If you know the length ft.(linear) and you wish to know its area (sq. footage), you must also know the width. Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) equals area or sq. feet. Linear in this case refers to length.

You cannot have linear square footage because: "linear" means the measurement is 1-dimensional. "square" means the measurement is 2-dimensional. The above two statements are mutually contradictory!

43 linear feet. The diameter of the circle is the longest distance that you can have in the circle.

Multiply the linear feet by 12.

Without a second measurement of width, there is no way of knowing. Linear is length and square foot is area. You have to know length and width to figure it. 30 linear feet 1 foot wide would be 30 square feet.

I have never seen linear used on a paint can, but if it is brush paint, you would have to assume a foot wide stripe so that would be 25 sq. ft. If it is a spray can, you would have to see how wide a pattern it has at the distance recommended on the can and figure from there.

Area of a circle = pi*radius2

No, but it is non-linear.

Linear footage is a one dimensional measurment. Board footage is volume. one board foot is 1 inch thick by 12 inches square. 1" x 12" x 12" = 144 cubic inches of wood or one board foot.
